Welcome to the SpotOnHealth HealthPathways Project site

This site assists with the management of the SpotOnHealth HealthPathways program. It includes information about how HealthPathways is developed locally, how you can access it, and how it can help you in your clinical work. 

What is SpotOnHealth HealthPathways?

SpotOnHealth HealthPathways provides clinicians in the greater Brisbane South catchment with web-based information outlining the assessment, management and referral of more than 550 conditions. Click on the image to the right to see an example pathway.

HealthPathways is based on an initiative from the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) in Christchurch, New Zealand, where it has contributed to significant improvements in the way hospitals and general practice share the care and management of patients. It is designed to be used at point of care primarily by general practitioners but is also available to specialists, nurses, allied health and other health professionals.

The HealthPathways portal is not designed for patient use, therefore a username and password is only provided to clinicians. However, many of the pathways do contain information for patients which can be printed off and given to patients at  the time of consultation.

Please click on the image above to see a pathway.

Important information about using HealthPathways

SpotOnHealth HealthPathways is an enabler for joined up care.  HealthPathways content is being progressively localised to the Brisbane South region through collaborations between general practitioners, hospital specialists, allied health and nursing providers, non-government organisations and peak bodies.

Pathways that have not yet been localised for Brisbane South, will display an alert banner (shown below) to denote that the content was developed in New Zealand.

New Zealand pathways may contain useful condition management information. However, please use your clinical judgement as to the appropriateness for your patient and the Brisbane South region. Please keep this in mind whilst viewing the site.

Find out more about how pathways are developed here.
